Subjective....The different eras, the individual state of mind. Jerry Moore's Jai Alai Fronton recording never dissapoints........

That's so funny--3-28-72 also came to mind for me as a Bob show. But is that because he's playing well or because he happens to be up in the mix, or both?

It's funny you would point that out Lou because I noticed that 3 of my choices were commercial releases.Since they are usually well mixed you can hear Bob and Keith much better than your average show where oft times it can be a challenge.In looking through my notes it seems in the shows I picked that Bob and Keith actually had played well at those performances,but there is no denying that a well balanced mix might be influential in how you hear a particular players contribution.
